    'Watch as the sands take shape…

    A desert wind whispers of memory and regret

    An army marches high in the golden skies

    A traveller grows tired of seeing the end of the world

    A man no longer wants to be human

    A people run eternally from the rising sun

    In this evocative collection of short fiction Dirk Strasser shapes eighteen stories suffused by the sands of loss, understanding and redemption.'
